    The absolute best!

    Where do I start?! I mean, you only have to look at the photo to see how incredible Juliet is. My face was absolutely flawless and I have never felt so beautiful. Juliet could not have been more lovely and made the morning of my wedding so enjoyable and relaxed. I honestly could not be happier with how I looked. If you are thinking about booking Juliet...stop thinking and do it! You will not regret it.

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Thanks so much Chelsea... I'm glad you were so pleased... You do have incredible skin so you can take some of the credit! It was such a fun morning... With lots of laughs!

    Just Perfect!!

    Having had my makeup done by Juliet 5 years ago at my sisters wedding I had no doubt that I wanted Juliet to do my makeup for my big day!! Juliet is so lovely and easy to talk to, the whole morning was relaxed and enjoyable. By the time Juliet had finished her magic, myself and my 3 bridesmaids all felt like a million dollars. Our makeup was flawless and lasted all day!! Juliet even went the extra mile and helped with finishing touches like getting my dress done up! She also checked that my makeup was on point right before I was about to go and walk down the aisle!! I can’t thank you enough Juliet for making the morning of my wedding so perfect!!

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Thanks so much Amy... It was lovely back being part of your family again for a morning... There was so much laughter! I'm glad you all felt lovely... You really did look beautiful 😍

    I have never felt so beautiful

    Juliet did make up for myself, 3 bridesmaids and my mum and she was fantastic. We all felt so amazing all day and I had guests amazed at how my makeup was still completely intact by the end of the night after dancing the night away! I am a very pale person, who often struggles to find make up the right shade, and this was my BIGGEST worry for the wedding. I couldn't think of anything worse than having an orange face. I also keep my make up very natural so I wanted to still look like myself; and safe to say that Juliet nailed it! She did my make up exactly how I imagined and my (now) husband has said that if we ever have an event to go to I must hire Juliet again as he couldn't stop commenting on how great the make up was! Thank you so much.

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Aww thanks so much Holly... I'm so glad you felt so beautiful! Its lovely to hear that you husband loved how you looked too... I'd love to work on you again ❤️❤️❤️

    The most perfect morning

    Juliet did the makeup for myself, my bridesmaids and mother of the bride and groom for our wedding. She made us all feel very comfortable from the beginning. Having not wanted heavy makeup, Juliets 'best version of yourself' approach was absolutely perfect. The makeup stayed on all day and night (and the next day, oops!). Thank you for making me feel like a princess 💕

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Thanks so much Sophie! I'm so glad you all felt so lovely and were so pleased... Great that the makeup lasted until the next day! 😂

    Juliet was so welcoming from the very start. I was quite a nervous bride as I don’t often wear make up, so I didn’t know what look I really wanted. I wanted to look special for my big day, but still look like me. Juliet knew exactly what would look good and I was very happy with the results.
    On the morning of the wedding, Juliet helped everything to remain calm and relaxed, right up until the beginning of the ceremony. The rest of my wedding party were also very pleased with their make up and Juliet’s ability to get involved and help with every aspect of the wedding morning. The make up lasted all day and looked brilliant in the photos. Thank you Juliet for helping to make my day very special.

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Thanks so much Katie... I'm so glad you were all so pleased woth your makeup. It was lovely to spend your wedding morning with you!

    So grateful

    Juliet was amazing when she did our make up on my wedding day. She was so reliable and professional and did an amazing job. Everyone loved her and she adapted everyones make up for each individual as the bridesmaids varied a lot in their usual looks and make up choices. So happy we went with Juliet and would highly recommend her if you are looking for someone for you're own events.

    Fabulous!!! 💖

    Booking Juliet to do our makeup was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day!

    It was the first time that most of my wedding party had had their makeup done by someone else, so everyone was super nervous, but we needn't have worried as Juliet made us all feel at ease and did such a beautiful job with us all. She gave us all such a confidence boost, having her there on the day was absolutely priceless.

    We were not an easy party to take care of, I was super anxious and have eczema and PCOS which flared up due to the wedding stress, so poor Juliet had hormonal spots, facial hair, dry skin and redness to deal with on the bride, but she took it all in her stride which I really appreciated.

    My mum was more anxious than I was if that's even possible, there was wedding day chaos, the room was freezing cold and multiple people in my party changed their hair since the trial which wasn't ideal, but Juliet was a cheerful and calming presence throughout to everyone.

    Her makeup skills are incredible and she made everyone feel beautiful. Everyone was commenting on our makeup all day, she really did an amazing job and I can't thank her enough. Feeling glamorous on my wedding day was absolutely priceless, and I really appreciated the photos she took in the morning, I have some gorgeous getting ready photos that I'll treasure forever.

    She is an absolute hero. Book her, she's fantastic!

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Oh wow thanks so much Rachel... What lovely words! It was so lovely to be a part of your wedding day and to see you all become so confident and feel so lovely ❤️

    Just wonderful !

    My daughter and I had a trial with Juliet for my wedding and following this asked Juliet to do our makeup on the actual day. She is an absolute professional and made the whole process far less stressful than this 56 yr old thought it would be ! Juliet made me look like me , but a more polished , glamorous version - which was exactly what I wanted. My daughter looked beautiful. And the best bit was the makeup lasted all day/evening. I would highly recommend Juliet - not only is she a brilliant MUA but also a really lovely person too.

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Thanks so much Jo! You looked beautiful and I was so glad to be a part of your wedding day... It was a great few hours xx

    Fantastic make up artist

    Juliet did the most amazing job on our wedding day - she did the makeup for me, my two bridesmaids and my mum and we honestly have never looked better! The great thing was - it still looked like us and was very natural AND it stayed put all the way until the end!

    One other thing - I was so nervous but Juliet is so friendly and warm that she put me right at ease and helped me so much to relax and enjoy our special day.

    Thank you so much Juliet xxx

    Perfect wedding makeup

    Juliet was an absolute superstar and helped my wedding morning go without a glitch. Her makeup skills were absolutely incredible and made myself and my bridesmaids feel super special. Juliet also worked in tandem with our hair stylist to create a seamless service which was absolutely spot on and even included a few giggles along the way. Despite being one of the hottest days of the year, my makeup stayed on-point for the duration of the day and even survived the dance floor! I would recommend Juliet to any bride wanting a professional yet easy going MUA who will go that extra mile for your special day.

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Wow Jenny thanks so much! I'm so glad you were all so pleased and that your makeup withstood the heat as your wedding day was HOT! You really did look beautiful xx

    Juliet is Superb!

    Juliet did my makeup for our wedding on 4/9/21 at Dodford Manor, my mum and I had a makeup trial a few months before and we knew from then she was "the one"! She's experienced, talented and knows how to help keep your nerves at bay! I wish she could do my makeup everyday!

    Juliet Cunnington's reply:

    Thanks so much - I'm glad you were so pleased! I wish I could do your makeup every day too as you've got such a beautiful face! Xx
